As many of you will know a new report, reiterating the lasting damage caused by detention was released today by Dame Anne Owers
In the run up to the election it is important that those who oppose detention make sure there message is heard. We are asking people to:
1 – Check your name is on the petition and get ONE OTHER PERSON to sign (this would boost our numbers by nearly 1000). http://petitions.number10.gov.uk/NoChildDetention/.
You could also invite them to join this group.
2 – To challenge misconceptions and lies about child immigration detention in the media- such as the idea that taking children into care is the only alternative to detention or that the end of child detention would increase child trafficking. Lots of information is available here – www.ecdn.org.
Thank you for all your support,
